Green mint leaves have many uses. Theyare used for the traditional mint sauce to go with delicious roasted lamb or made into a mint tea. Mint is particularly tasty for adding to the water when boiling new potatoes such as Jersey Royals.Yummy!
Also great in drinks such as herbal teas, or in a refreshing glass or water (or in a cocktail).
Once established though, the roots can be invasive so plant out with care or alternatively, plant into pots (which would be ideal for your patio). Mint can grow to a height of about 60cm (24″)
Sow from March to April
